Buying a 00 TJ.

Im real excited about buying a jeep in about 2 weeks. (My first Paycheck) How does $6000 for a 2000 6cyl Wrangler with most of the Sahara options, Hard top and 101,000 on the odo sound? It does have a little rust on the under carrage, the radiator leaks (slowly), needs new tires, Wind shield wiper problem, the left turn signal is cracked, and there is a little dent to the fender where the turn signal is. It was well maintained but has sat for a while. Tell me what you think! And does anyone have any idea about the wipers? They only work sometimes and when they do they seem a little sluggish. Ill try to post pics this weekend.

Government and Religon are failed attempts to control the uncontrollable.

Good Price

Hey, King of Beers, the low range selling price for what you're looking at is about $9,000 according to the NADA Guide for used cars. Even considering the stuff you'll have to fix up, it still sounds to me like it's a good deal. The resale on Jeep Wranglers is fairly high. I sold my '01 TJ on late '04 and the value was $11,000 at that time for a 4 cyl - 5 speed with 90,000. Sounds like a plan. Hope this helps.

That's less than I got my 2000 4 banger for and I had a few small issues to work out too. Not sure about your wiper problem, maybe just a loose connection somewhere. 6000 doesn't sound bad at all.

Well mine is a 2000 Sahara and I got it 1 year ago with 98k miles in a very very good conditions and I paid like $ 9000, no leaks brand new all terrain tires ,A/C, 4.0 5 spd etc etc. and no problems with it exept for the Winshield wiper motor like you.Some times work some times not.(I will replace it $89 @ NAPA)
Still a good deal $6000 for what you r looking.

Good Luck.
